    So the wife and daughter were out at a friends which means I was alone for dinner. Had a nice porterhouse innthenfridge and decided what better time to feast on it.

    Seasoned it with some Cooter Rub who h is nice and spicy. It's got chipotle pepper, garlic and a bunch of other spices...
    Right over the vortex for about a minute and half per side:


    Once I got a nice sear, I finished it indirect. The whole cook took about 8 minutes. Finished it want a blue cheese parsley butter I had made last week and threw in the freezer. And now the photos:


    I can't say enough how much I love the vortex. I use it almost every cook now. Thanks for looking!

    Thanks! Wings on the vortex are the best. I usually use a piece of Apple wood. The vortex is the greatest accessory in the history of grilling haha

    Thanks! Rare occasion for me and my wife and daughter are not huge steak lovers so I decided it was the perfect opportunity.

    Thanks so much Al! I took advantage of a good sale, 5.77 for choice porterhouse. All of them had nice big pieces of tenderloin too. Got a bunch of them including some that are almost 2 inches thick. Definitely going to smoke and reverse sear those!

    Now I am hungry. I have been debating whether or not to get a vortex. This settles the argument. You really cant beat that sear and grill marks.
